Ildar Ufimsky arrested in Moscow Region
Thief in law Ildar Ufimsky has been detained in the Moscow Region by the Criminal Investigation operatives with the help of traffic police inspectors from the Mytishchinskoe Intermunicipal MIA Directorate.
According to the MIA press service, a Mercedes Benz vehicle belonging to previously convicted 52-year-old Ildar Asyanov had been stopped in the village of Yudino, the Mytishchi district. According to law enforcers information, Asyanov is a member of an ethnic organized crime group supplying drugs to the Moscow Region.
Personal search of Asyanov revealed a package with white powder, which turned out to be heroin with total weight of 5.86 grams, and was later seized.
A criminal case for illegal trafficking of narcotic drugs under Article 228 of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against Ildar Ufimsky.
Ildar Ufimsky, or Asyan, was crowned in 1993 while serving another sentence. According to MIA, after his release, the thief in law established control over robbers, extortionists, and shadow bankers. As media reported, he was the organizer of a criminal group, which consisted of five groups and the total number of at least 100 members.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
